ELLE announces first solo male cover. But who is it?

We have some news. ELLE UK magazine is poised to shoot its first ever solo male cover star for the July 2012 issue, out on May 30th .

Breaking with a 26 year tradition and an unparalleled roster of female celebrities, models and a few his ’n’ hers pairings - remember Liam and Nicole of 2001? – the UK’s number one fashion and beauty magazine will dedicate the July issue cover to the hottest man (or men) in the world.

‘He's iconic, he's handsome and we love him’ swoons ELLE Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy, ‘so we decided it was time to dedicate a celebratory cover to this man. And because Team ELLE are so excited about meeting him we're sharing the shoot with you in advance. All will be revealed on Tuesday so book mark this page now!"

But who is this famous man? We’ve put together a rogues gallery of possible – and quite frankly inspirational – subjects and want to hear who you would put on the cover. Is Michael Fassbender the man of the moment? Are One Direction readying themselves to be the biggest band the world has ever seen and ripe for ELLEification? What about David Bowie? An untouchable icon after 40 years.

Tweet us @ELLEuk, Facebook message us through www.Facebook.com/ELLEuk and we’ll throw out some hints before revealing all on Tuesday morning, right here on ELLEuk.com.
